Giveaway: Nightfall by Ellen Connor

June 10, 2011 at 5:00 am 17 comments

Earlier this week, I featured Nightfall as one of my anticipated books on my June 2011 Releases post. I’d been looking forward to this book for quite a while. “Ellen Connor” is actually the writing team of Carrie Lofty and Ann Aguirre. And, with a team like that, I had pretty high expectations.

Here’s the description of Nightfall:


Their instincts will save them.
Their passion will transform them.
Growing up with an unstable, often absent father who preached about the end of the world, Jenna never thought, in her wildest nightmares, that his predictions would come true. Or that he would have a plan in place to save her–one that includes the strong, stoic man who kidnaps and takes her to a remote cabin in the Pacific Northwest.
The mysterious ex-Marine named Mason owes a life-debt to Jenna’s father. Skilled and steadfast, he’s ready for the Change, but Jenna proves tough to convince. Until the power grid collapses and the mutant dogs attack–vicious things that reek of nature gone wrong.
When five strangers appear, desperate to escape the bloodthirsty packs, Jenna defies her protector and rescues them. As technology fails and the old world falls away, Jenna changes too, forever altered by supernatural forces. To fight for their future, she and Mason must learn to trust their instinctive passion–a flame that will see them through the bitter winter, the endless nights, and the violence of a new Dark Age.

I read Nightfall earlier this week, and I can tell you, it lived up to all those high expectations. You don’t want to miss this book!

Co-author Ann Aguirre has generously offered a book to be given away a a lucky commenter.

So, in the comments below, tell me: when technology dies and magic is in its ascendency, what 3 things would you make sure you had with you in your bunker? (Remember, technology is d-e-a-d. No computers, phones, ereaders, etc)

Contest will close on June 12, 2011, Monday, 11:59pm PST. I will post the randomly selected winner on Tuesday, June 13.

    I can’t wait to read “Nightfall!” Assuming I had the basics covered, I’d bring my library of actual paperbacks – a library is one thing, right? ;-), a lifetime supply of chapstick, and chocolate! Thanks for the giveaway.

    This sounds like a great book! Let’s three… 3 things. that’s tough. 1-a good blade, 2-a badass (and hottie) sidekick, and 3-a good pillow (I get grumpy without sleep). :)

  • 6. LJM  |  June 10, 2011 at 8:05 am

    Hmm, supposing the basics are taken care of I would bring: my library of dead tree books( yes, I agree that a library is one thing LOL), an instrument of some kind, and knitting and crochet supplies.

  • 7. Lillie H.  |  June 10, 2011 at 8:14 am

    Obviously, a mixed library of favorite and unread print books is top of my list also.
    A large supply of swedish fish

    My mind, body and entertainment requirements!

    My sister and I have actually made a list of things that we would want in a bunker if something happened but it’s really hard to pick the top three. Well I would definitely want to have a large supply of books. I would also want to have large supply of bottled water and the last thing would probably be of course a large quantity of non-perishable food.

    2. My box with favorite books (Yes I actually have a box, it’s in my office ready for if there ever should be a fire, I can grab it and run, after I grab the important documents and the box with irreplaceable stuff)
    3. My purse, since hubby calls it “the survival pack”

  • 10. Mariee  |  June 10, 2011 at 5:54 pm

  • 12. Sullivan McPig  |  June 11, 2011 at 10:15 am

    If this is international then please include me.
    I’d want:
    1 – some company
    2 – a good, sharp knife
    3 – a squeeze box flashlight (the kind that doesn’t need batteries)

  • 13. Sherri A. Dub  |  June 11, 2011 at 10:23 am

    1. I’d pack J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter Novel series.
    You have to have literary genius with you at the end of the line.

    2. A large (Mondo) bottle of Jack Daniels.
    Gotta have the good stuff for stress relief & medicinal purposes.

    3. My Siamese cat, Kadabra.
    She’s large enough to be a watch dog, and she’s a great companion.

    Ok: I’m withdrawing as I just won this book somewhere else

  • 15. orannia  |  June 12, 2011 at 2:08 am

    OK, no laughing, but…and I’m assuming that the basics (i.e. food, water, warm clothing, a light source etc. are already present?) in no particular order, okay, in reverse order :)

    1. A couple of my favourite books..

    2. Family photos

    3. JL


    Please don’t include me in the giveaway Renee, I just wanted to comment :)

  • 16. Ren Puspita  |  June 12, 2011 at 10:27 am

    Oh, I really want to read this one..
    Lemme see, for 3 things that I want to bring at my bunker :

    1. A package of book, as many as I can grab, without books I’ll boring to death

    2. A package of instant noodles, all variants. Because noodles is my favorite food, and I’ll boring to death if I’m not eat it (at last I can make hot water with magic, or make a fireplace :P)

    3. Pillow, I can’t sleep without pillow

    (if I can add, a hunky man to become my companion, always nice ;) )
